Establishes minimum regulations for mechanical systems using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. Topics covered include ventilation; exhaust systems; duct systems; combustion air; chimneys and vents; specific appliances, fireplaces and solid-fuel-burning equipment; boilers, water heaters and pressure vessels; refrigeration; hydronic piping; fuel oil piping and storage; solar systems; and more. Important changes to the 2006 International Mechanical Code include: Air velocity in a grease duct serving a Type I hood reduced from 1,500 feet per minute to 500 feet per minute. New Section 507.2.1.1 requires exhaust hoods to automatically operate during cooking operations in commercial kitchens by means of an electrical interlock or heat sensors or other approved means. A change to 403.2.1 relaxes the absolute ban on recirculation of air from locker rooms, bathrooms, and swimming pools. Now, up to 10% of the supply air stream is allowed to consist of air exhausted from such spaces.
